Re: [cdt-dev] CMake plugins

I think it would be good to aim at the December release for official CMake support.

Ideally we need an editor with at least syntax highlighting. Content assist would be awesome. We can either build our own editor, maybe using the new Generic Text Editor, or try and convince the CMakeEd gang to relicense and contribute. (Despite old copyright dates, it looks like it’s actively developed by a couple of people).

The other major item is to make sure users can create different build configurations. Right now everything is driven by the Launch Bar and the configuration is selected based on Launch Mode and Launch Target type. I have a start on a Build settings tab on the launch configuration which may be close to enough.

The CMake Server support would be cool too. Then I think we’d be in good shape.

I do have an itch to scratch to learn the Generic Editor but if someone has a start on one already, please let us know.

I've been meaning to allocate some time to improve the CMake-plugins, but I haven't got very far. I have implemented support for the CMake server API (which is still in Gerrit), but not much else:

Hi devs, 

Is it intentional that the CMake plug-ins are not published to Oxygen simrel repo? I know they are experimental, but it ia harder to find them not on the simrel. 

Yes. They are experimental. So experimental I don’t really want the general public using them. There are still a lot of workflows that are cumbersome, hard coded, etc.
